Fits perfectly, looks good - is comfortable to wear, well done!

Better than Castelli even - and similar excellent leg-gripper style. :)

Yes, I quite like the kit, the bib is very comfortable with its nice wide shoulder straps. I love the socks. Did you say there were more of them? I'd be up for a few extras.

I have plenty of XL socks and know that Tineli has a few more though need to check which size (min. order of socks was actually higher than expected).


Otherwise I have plenty of emails and comments here as well on the quality of the kit. I know that we didn't do a bargin basement price but with the quality and extras like reflecting piping and flatlock the price was excellent as I would expect to pay much more for off-the-rack gear in this quality. I cut-even on the costs, infact have lost out a bit due to 3 kit orders which are not being paid for and are sitting here though - hopefully for one, the one gentleman is just on holidays and gets back soon. The sizes are not common sizes so unfortunately wont suit most people.


Despite this, we had a long wait on this at one stage I gave the design to Tineli though their suggestions didn't match my (our) vision. None the less, a big credit to Jono of Tineli in Melbourne who has helped make this a reality, who met my expections as a supplier by taking a genuine interest, discussing the design and providing valuable feedback so that we get the best results. Not only that - the kit was delivered on time with the usual 12 weeks for the socks shortened so that we could have the kit sooner (from the time it was ordered).

Finally, my calf was ready to ride again and the weather was almost good enough to trial the outfit, so armed with a base layer, it got trialled on a shortish local ride.

Fit is good, although I could have gone for XL bibs, but they fit well. Chamois is good, and the jersey fit is great as is the overall quality.

Many thanks Chris :D

Having to wear a jacket still with this - but the fit is good.

Perhaps a hint for a future BNA cycling kit, long pants as well? :idea: :wink: (just a none too subtle hint). :D

Believe me, I'd buy them if they were the same quality as the rest!

That's a good tip as it seems as though summer doesn't want to appear.

+1, it's some of the best quality gear I've owned. Still get a bit shocked the socks are worth $25 every time I put them on.
